As morals are subjective, we cannot say they are wholly wrong in acting as they do. You are all getting vexated about this "bad" act, I personally don't care that much. Your opinions as to how it's "bad" mean little in an absolute sense.

The only good Africans ever make is slaves anyhow.

How do you go from "morality is subjective" to "anything goes"? Morals do not exist in an isolated cube. They involve other people. Sure, some people think it's fine to kill gays, but I don't, and the gay people don't either.

To ignore something that bothers you because morality is subjective is to pretend you live in isolation from the rest of the world. Do you oppose rape? Well under your thinking, if someone is being raped you wouldn't do shit about it, because there is nothing absolutely wrong about it. That is irrelevant. You acknowledge that the rapist wants to rape, but you think it is wrong and you intervene. You don't let someone commit what you believe to be horrible crimes just because he has a different moral code than you. What then if someone tries to murder you? Are you to let him succeed because there is nothing inherently wrong about killing? Of course you fucking care. You fight back because you don't want to die.

How can you oppose something so horrible yet simply accept it? We don't live in bubbles and pretending we do means your morals mean jack shit. Morality is something we feel ourselves, but it applies to other people. If you oppose rape you don't want people to be raped. If you oppose imprisoning gays you don't want gays to be imprisoned.

If everyone agreed that morals only apply to ourselves, then no one would be imprisoning anyone. We'd be leaving each other alone. But throwing gays in jail is forcing one's morals on them. Either you also apply your morals outside of your mind, or you are opening the door for a one-sided conflict of "might means right".

Subjectivity does not mean "anything goes". Some of us care about other people. Some of us care about ourselves. So when we see injustice, we want to do something about it.

If something can be destroyed by the truth, it might be worth destroying.
